ECO 339L • International Finance
International Economics studies the interaction of economies with the rest of the world, and comprises two main building blocks. The first one is International Trade, comprised by theories explaining the observed flows of goods and services between countries. The second block is International Finance, which studies the flows of capital across borders, the market for currencies and the fundamentals that determine the equilibrium prices in these markets. The goal of Econ 339L is to provide students with a conceptual framework to understand the behavior of these markets and the tools to trade effectively in them.
